Brodhead Watershed Assn Autumn Hike To Bowers Run/Fall Creek Sept. 20

The Brodhead Watershed Association invites you to put aside the long, hot summer for a refreshing autumn exploration of the beautiful, wild headwaters of McMichaels Creek in Monroe County.
From 1 to 4:30 p.m. September 20, naturalists Don Miller and Jim Connor will lead a hike through a portion of Pohoqualine Fish Association property, one of the oldest private fish associations in the country and the oldest of the Pocono area’s historic fishing clubs.
A conservation easement held by Pocono Heritage Land Trust protects the three primary McMichaels Creek headwater streams – Hypsy Creek, Fall Creek, and Bowers Run – and the watershed surrounding them, and provides for public access to 500 of the club’s acres for passive recreation, including hiking and hunting.
Participants should meet in the parking area of Pohoqualine’s clubhouse, between Tannersville and Brodheadsville at the intersection of Route 715 and Hypsy Gap Road in McMichaels.
The walk will be held rain or shine, and will be both on and off trail on level-to-moderate streamside terrain. Dress for outdoor adventuring with hiking boots or sturdy walking shoes, and be comfortable in a wild environment for several hours.
Pre-registration is suggested; call PHLT at 570-424-1514 (leave your contact information in a message). Additional walk information and directions can be provided upon registration.
There is a suggested donation for the walk of $10 for nonmembers and $5 for BWA and PHLT members; children under 12 walk for free.
For information about this and other upcoming events and activities, visit the Brodhead Watershed Association or Pocono Heritage Land Trust websites.
